Are these testing conditions valid for field sobriety tests pertaining to DWI/DWAI charge in New York?
Can any of the following be used to challenge the validity of the walk-and-turn and/or one-leg-stand: 1) ambient temperature 51° F 2) windy conditions due to site being shoulder of expressway at top of mountain (wind chill discomfort aspect and/or force of wind itself) Can the fact that the cruiser's emergency lights were still flashing be used to challenge validity of the walk-and-turn, as they would have been flashing in subject's eyes for the return 9 steps? (One leg stand was done facing away from cruiser lights.) In officer's nighttime roadside demonstration of walk-and-turn, are officer's arms supposed to be at his side? He was holding flashlight with one hand and other hand was in front, pointing down.

Searching for expert witness(es) for DWI/DWAI case in New York: eye condition, contact lenses, and field sobriety tests
For DWI case in New York, I would like to find individual(s) who can testify as expert on two topics: First, someone to testify that someone who is a wearer of rigid gas permeable hard contact lenses and/or suffers from eye condition keratoconus can both experience sudden and severe ocular pain that can give rise to errant driving and exhibit an appearance and characteristics that police commonly consider indication of intoxication, and that police can and do mistake the two despite their training. Second, I would like to find an expert witness who can review a dash cam video recording of actual performance of field sobriety tests and can testify as to their unreliability in general. Names of such individuals or simply where/how to search for such individuals would be helpful.
Isn't this something your lawyer should be doing? In any event, I think you need an ophthalmologist for the first...
Can you tell me the consequences for accidentally trespassing into someones home when drunk?
My friend, he's 20, was really drunk and he blacked out in someones house down the road. The people living there found him in the morning and didn't know him so they called the police and pressed charges for breaking in. He has no idea how he got there. I am guessing he will be charged with trespassing in the second degree and fined for underage drinking.

How can I beat this DUI charge
I left my Debit Card at a gas station pump in Harrison, New York and returned almost two hours after closing to search for it. I found it but as I was returning to my car a police officer arrived and asked me why I was in a closed gas station, when I replied that i was looking for a lost debit card, he asked me if I lived in the area and where I was from, and shined his flashlight at me. He asked me to turn the car off and called for back up, they asked me to search my car and found a small amount of marijuanna. They arrested me and charged me with DUI, however I was not charged with possession of marijuana nor I did not take a blood test. I was also outside of the car when they arrived. What can I do?
There may be a suppression issue regarding asking to search the car. Hire a good criminal defense lawyer.
